Aside from my potty training issue... My son throws HORRIBLE tantrums.. Throws himself on the floor, throws things, hits, SPITS on my floor, and bites his wrist. How can I keep him from doing these things, I know tantrums will happen but he throws them all the time. Resturants, stores, home, car... I hate getting those looks from people in public like "control your banshee child" hes a great kid he just has an attitude and I dont know what to do. HELP.Answer Question

My daughter has just started doing things like this also, when people give me looks I give them right back and would like to tell them that if they have anything productive to help I would be more than willing to hear but otherwise back off, but I don't. We have started doing timeout and when she is hitting herself and screaming while in time out we just add more time, in other words she does not get out of time out until she is calm and knows why she was there. The problem seems to be that you don't have a timeout everywhere you go and can't just stay locked up in the house all the time, what we do is take a family timeout if we are out in public like at the grocery store we will go to the area where the restrooms are and sit until we can calm down and so on. It is very frustrating and annoying at times but I feel that if they think they can get away with acting like that out in public they will. Good luck.
